Texas Trees Foundation is proud to have been selected for the 2023 Gold Leaf – Outstanding Landscape Improvement award.
“The work we’re able to accomplish by partnering with the City of Dallas Park and Recreation is very valuable. New trees at parks not only provide benefits for park goers, they also help increase Dallas' tree canopy coverage and mitigate urban heat.”
-Janette Monear, President and CEO of Texas Trees Foundation
TTF's Branching Out program is being celebrated for its increase in green canopy over Texas for the 2022 Texas Community Forestry Awards Program. This program is open to organizations or individuals with a role in building stronger communities by planting, maintaining or protecting trees.
The award, presented by Texas A&M Forest Service & the Texas Chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture, recognizes individuals, organizations, or municipalities that have made significant contributions through tree planting and landscaping that enhance environmental protection, conservation, beautification, energy conservation, or wildlife protection. Projects must show significant impact over several years.
TTF is being recognized during the 2023 Texas Tree Conference Awards Luncheon in Waco on Thursday, September 21st. The Foundation is looking forward to receiving a numbered, remarked and framed, limited-edition print of a famous Texas tree painting, commissioned especially for the program.
